Lincoln Center at Home – Archival Performances

Full schedule available at


Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba
Friday, April 5, 2020 at 5:30 pm ET

Grammy-Award winner Joshua Bell brings a taste of Cuba to Lincoln Center, aided by Daiana Garcia and the Chamber Orchestra of Havana, Dave Matthews, the "poet of Havana" Carlos Varela, and other special guests. This one-night only event marked the U.S. debut of the Chamber Orchestra of Havana, composed of some of Cuba’s most accomplished classical musicians. Bell performs a range of selections from Vivaldi classics, to Piazzolla tangos and more.


Ballet Hispánico (part of Lincoln Center at the Movies)

Friday, April 10, 2020 at 5:30 pm ET

Ballet Hispanico will “whisk us away to contemporary dance’s hottest spot” (Washington Post) in this imaginative and theatrical showcase of Latin-inspired contemporary dance at its best. In Club Havana, the intoxicating rhythms of the conga, rumba, mambo, and cha cha are brought to life by choreographer Pedro Ruiz, himself a native of Cuba. Hailed as a “masterpiece” by the Chicago Sun-Times, Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s CARMEN.maquia is a Picasso-inspired, contemporary take on Bizet’s classic opera about a passionate gypsy. Riveting from start to finish, the physically charged and sensual choreography fuses contemporary dance with nods to the Spanish paso doble and flamenco.


Lincoln Center’s American Songbook: The Villalobos Brothers

Friday, April 17, 2020 at 5:30 pm ET

The Villalobos Brothers perform high-octane Mexican fiddling, blending the indigenous rhythms and melodies of their native Veracruz, Mexico with the harmonies of both jazz and classical music. A trio of actual brothers, they are violinists, singer-songwriters, composers, and arrangers. Now based in New York, The Villalobos Brothers were the first band from Mexico to play The Apollo Theater as featured guest artist, and in 2013 they won the “Battle of the Boroughs,” one of National Public Radio’s competitions. They have performed at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, Shea Stadium, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and they have collaborated and recorded with Dolly Parton, Pierre Boulez, and Eddie Palmieri, to name only a few.
